Doubt over local election results in Istanbul will remain if Turkey's High Election Board (YSK) rejects an appeal by President Tayyip Erdogan's AK Party (AKP) to renew elections in the city, a party vice chairman said on Tuesday. Speaking to reporters in Istanbul, AKP Deputy Chairman Ali Ihsan Yavuz said his party would demand a renewal of the mayoral elections in Istanbul after determining what he said were irregularities that directly impacted the vote.
